The Great Taxis Moat. This is a dreaded obstacle to the Great Pardubice and it must be added that rightly so. Unfortunately, she demanded the highest tax this year as well. The horse from the stable of the legendary rider Josef Váni could not jump over it. Sottovento broke his neck during the jump.
